Sure about that?  Maxxis = CST

The XX1 DUB cranks are 80g lighter than the XX1 GXP cranks (although admittedly that is not all in the crank itself).

Sure.  I'd just be MUCH more annoyed if a new shell was involved.   Its also fun to point out that crank/BB interface standards are numerous already.  

People seem to be acting like the current state of affairs is a nicely unified standard interface, when that is far from accurate.   

Overall, it seems like a pragmatic solution.  BB shells aren't going to standardize anytime soon, so SRAM is making a system that works well with all of the most common ones.

That's what the T47 guys are going for.  Really we should blame Shimano for BB86/92.

Can't reply to Cooper, but putting DUB on a list of BB shell standards is simply false.  The list is correct until you add DUB.  

DUB would fit into crank/BB interfaces, which would be: 

JIS square taper

ISO square taper

Octalink

Octalink v2

Power spline

Power drive

ISIS

30mm short (BB30/PF30)

30mm long (BB386, Cinch, etc)

Hollowtech 2

Campy Ultra Torque

GXP

MegaExo 19mm

MegaExo 24mm

X-Type

and now DUB.  

I know I missed several in that list.  A few are somewhat cross compatible (the 24mm ones primarily), but not 100%.  I've had 24mm MegaExo (FSA) cranks that wouldn't fit another brand 24mm BB.   You can see from that list that this is not new ground.  

For SRAM, this replaces GXP (which is already a unique system, requiring a dedicated BB) and their BB30/PF30 cranks (which are NOT long spindle, so don't currently fit BB86/92, BSA, or BB90/95 shells).
